    I'm running out of books!

    It's hard to hang about in the library looking for books because of their computer monitors and fluorescent lights ... if you know of a good book, please list it here.

    I'd love to be able to keep this thread going.

    Here are some excellent books I just read:

    East of the Mountains
    by David Guterson
    No Eye Can See by Jane Kirkpatrick (she lives very near us)
    The Teahouse Fire by Ellis Avery

    I basically have the same question, because I read JD Robb's Eve Dallas books and they are all set in the future but have never really considered them sci-fi.....

    If you like Sci-Fi/Fantasy try some Mercedes Lackey or Sharon Shinn. I love them both and they are prolific writers. You won't run out for a while!

    I would suggest Edger Rice Boroughs John Carter, WarLord of Mars.

    Neuromancer by William Gibson.

    Hmm, I may need to go back and reread that. Haven't read it in a few years.
